‘We’re on an incredible high’: James Webb Space Telescope scientists over the moon as observatory unfolds

From launching Christmas Day through working through Eastern Orthodox holidays, the James Webb multicultural space team had plenty to celebrate this holiday season after two weeks of work to acquire the intricate telescope.

Webb finally revealed its giant mirror on Saturday (January 8), marking the end of the deployment of the most complex telescope in space. All of the problems that arose after the observatory’s launch on December 25 were minor and far less than simulated, project manager Bill Ochs said at a press conference from the Webb Mission Control Center at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland.
